Frequently asked questions
Who is RC Corals?
We're Rick and Cathy...
Where are you located?
We're located just south of Nashville in Smyrna, TN.
Would you Deliver?
Sure, I'd deliver an order over $350 within a reasonable distance (thats up to my judgement), with a $20 fee for gas.
Of course I'd probably want to bring my camera and take photos of your tank and corals as a bonus.
Appointment time for delivery would be flipped though... you'd be at my mercy and availability of weekends and evenings.
Do you grow all your corals or import also?
We grow as many corals ourselves as space and time allow. When there's a lapse in availability we'll bring in some things we like from our multiple wholesale partners and make those available to you through our website. Typically corals and anemones we grow ourselves will have the RCc monicre on them.
Do you have any other pets?
Yes... we're cat people.
We have 4 unique cat personalities we've adopted that share our coral and anemone interests.
Would you consider corals on Consignment?
Hmmmm... hadn't thought about that, but probably would depending on what the seller had. Intrigueing thought that we should investigate based on interest.
Safety First - Dipping & Health Measures
All corals are dipped prior to being packaged and shipped, or packaged for picked up by appointment.
Typically Softies and Euphilia are kept in one system thats more nutrient rich than the fully seperate system that Anemone's and SPS/Acropora are kept in. We feel this allows us to best tailor the water conditions to the needs of different types of corals, while still functioning in some form of a 'general' parameter for each different system.
We ALWAYS suggest reefers dip corals they receive, quarentine for safety and never transfer water things are shipped into your own tanks.
Do you ship?
With the current Covid-19 situation we've decided to stick to local appointments and pickup/delivery. That will change and we'll resume shipping, but we're not setting a hard date for that. Meanwhile corals and anemones keep growing.
